Her Socialist Smile (2020). Her Socialist Smile: Directed by John Gianvito. With Noam Chomsky, Carolyn Forché. Author, activist, lecturer, and crusader for those with disabilities, the extraordinary Helen Keller was unable to see or hear, yet through hard work became highly accomplished and famously outspoken. Her autobiography The Story of My Life and its dramatic adaptation The Miracle Worker made Keller’s name a household word. John Gianvito’s new film Her Socialist Smile is a spare, pure, and beautifully composed account of her political life as a supporter of progressive causes. Incorporating footage of her home life, her surroundings, and her teacher Anne Sullivan, the film’s focal point shifts to Keller’s own words-her many speeches-as she ardently advocates on behalf of the causes in which she so firmly believed.
